Wright proposed a circle based house for a client with a hillside site in North Jersey around the same time in the early '50's, but it had more in common with the Sol Friedman house at Usonia in NY than it did with David Wright or "How to Live in the SW".

I suspect Ms. Levi may have misspoken or was misunderstood.

The David Wright House is definitely a masterpiece, but is the 1950 house "Wright's last residential masterpiece" as the op-ed states? I will start a list of other masterpieces that followed with the Raymond Carlson House of the same year.

One of ...
In all honesty, I couldn't find where the op-ed implied the David Wright House was Wright's "last residential masterpiece." It did report ...' “This is one of his last masterpieces," Rawling recently told a reporter from the Phoenix Business Journal.'

The article states:

"The goals of the foundation are threefold:

"__ Preserve Frank Lloyd Wright's last residential masterpiece and Arcadia's estate tradition.

"__ Celebrate the artistic legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright ... etc."

....about half way down.

This is from "Op-ed: Preserve and breathe life into Arcadia's Wright House," by Jim McPherson. The "Controversy" article by Robert Pela refers to it as "one of the last....

I'm sorry if it sounded that way, Roderick, but "one of" is not quite the same as "last of", and it seemed only fair to give the guy credit for his willingness to entertain the possibility that Mr. Wright might have created multiple masterpieces after 1950. As you so rightly and fairly pointed out ... he did.

if you will allow me to 'fudge' the post-1950 year deadline slightly, I would like to include the Laurent House (designed in mid-1949) to the list of Wright later-Usonian masterpieces.
